William, who is called Bill by his family, was proud to get his card as a member of the Screen Actors Guild, “it was his dream”, said his sister. Describing her brother as “quite the character,” she added, “A lot of people go to New York to be actors, and it doesn’t work out for everyone.
But to read about his acting accomplishments in the paper, he would like that. It will make him smile up in heaven.”
Actor William Wedell Death
A 64-year-old man, who was found dead in a luxury New York City apartment along with his 95-year-old mother, has been identified as an actor who landed a small role in Woody Allen’s 1989 film, Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Law enforcement sources told the New York Post that William Wedell had been using Febreeze to cover up the smell of his mother, Agnes’, body. Both mother and son were discovered on Saturday when police entered their apartment in the Tate building at 535 West 23rd St, in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

William Wedell Cause of Death
Investigators who found Agnes on their couch and William in a bed, believe she died at least a week before her son because she was starting to decompose.
Authorities told the Post that William is believed to have died two days before their bodies were discovered.
Julianna explained that their mother’s health had been declining for at least a month. William’s younger sister called the police for a wellness check due to their mother’s poor health.
‘My brother mentioned that our mother’s health was declining before the holidays,’ Julianna told the Post. ‘He said she wasn’t eating, sleeping more.’
Julianna said they believe their mother’s death was from ‘natural causes’ but her brother’s death is ‘the shocker’.
‘He might have had a heart attack, we don’t know,’ she said.
Police do not believe that foul play was involved and the medical examiner is investigating the cause of death for both the mother and son.
